    Sneak Peek: Portable Kitchen's New "PKGO" Camp & Tailgating Grill Review

    You first! Here we'll post news, gear reviews, videos, and recipes that are freshly published on the public site before getting advertised there! To see all our NEW Recipes & Gear Reviews, visit the Sneak Preview channel here: https://pitmaster.amazingribs.com/fo...ew-for-members

    Portable Kitchen's PKGO Camp & Tailgate Grilling System Review, by Max Good
    LINK: https://amazingribs.com/pkgo

    Self described as "small but mighty" the new PKGO is beautiful, elegant, clever, effective, and versatile, yet a little pricey for a small, portable charcoal grill. Nonetheless, with PKGO, you get what you pay for, and that means top quality. We say, "Go Man Go", to PKGO and award it our top, Platinum Medal.

    NOW I see this. After I bought the Chimp (which I still love). The problem is I want all this stuff.

      Same. I have both Smokey Joe sizes and I find myself justifying to myself that this would be good for the beach too.

    Oh....I'm a big PK fan. I will probably buy this. Really like the probe port. Wish my PK360 had one.

      Attjack - Of course I could make one. I had an older WSM and put a grommet in for my probes. The new WSM have a probe port. Just saying I wish my PK360 had one. They'll probably put them in on future models.

    Yeah, I really like this. Maybe I can sneak it into the rv basement and tell my wife it was always there, we just overlooked it for the past 2 years

      That line of reasoning might fly if you rub some dirt or grease on it or scuff it a little bit!

    That is really slick. I was biding my time until I bought a 18" Jumbo Joe to replace my 14" for camping but this is going to make that decision a little harder.


      Just ordered it.


        I love my PK original, if I was in the market for handy little grill for car camping or tailgates I'd be all over that.

        But I don't really do either, so I'm holding out for the Presidential Plus model. Make it the size of the BGE 2XL, 675 glorious sq in of cook space. I want the option of cooking 100 burgers at once!*

        *the Presidential Plus is not a real model and PK has no plans to make one AFAIK. But it'd be alot cooler if they did....

          Huskee Ummm, have you see the membership here? I think we could come up with 100 people to eat a burger. Or 50 people to eat two.

          Yeah the only limitation with my pk360 is size. If I had a 720 I wouldn’t need anything else.

        Are they still selling the short portable stand for the original? The original is great for picnics etc, where the go may be more suited to a camping situation.

          @Polabear777 Damn! That stand is about half the price of the grill.

          True the stand is expensive, but if you already have the original and want to transport it, the stand is cheaper than the new GO and the original is a more capable cooker.

          On the other hand if you have the PK360 and want to transport, you can actually cook with the capsule without a stand at all (on a non-flamable surface) since the intakes are front and back opening.

          This is probably why I'll never see a pk720 because they'd have to remove "portable" from the name.

        I'm really interested, but have a question. I'm looking for something I can use for kebabs...particularly the ground meat sorts that are done on wide "sword" skewers. I already have the skewers, and racks to support them above grate level, but I can't quite tell how well they'll fit on this.

        Do you have dimensions for the cooking grates, and how high are they above the charcoal grate. I don't do kebabs enough to warrant buying a purpose-made mangal, and that little PK looks really sweet. Thanks!

          The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

          The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

          Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

          This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
